Our Story

As we move through the 21st Century, conservation of wildlife has become a flagship for change. With broad-scale agricultural development driving rapid forest destruction, and the unsustainable demand for natural resources,  we have accelerated climate change, propelling us into a period of mass extinction.

Through analysis of these trends and current threats to biodiversity across South East Asia, Wildlife Asia has identified key priority landscapes of opportunity which host exceptional biodiversity and are home to globally iconic mega-fauna. These regions also have similar historical characteristics, where civil conflict has created conditions of instability, largely preventing extraction and destruction of natural resources until now.

With developing peace processes in these regions comes a drive for rapid economic development and the influx of foreign owned operations that will decimate the landscapes, as has occurred in neighbouring regions. The threats are immense but with adequate support for the implementation of direct protection mechanisms and sustainable long-term economic development we can achieve conservation of biodiversity and the stabilisation of our global climate. The window of opportunity is now.

Wildlife Asia has developed a proven history to operate in areas difficult for the large international non-government organisations to access, through a process of genuine relationship building with local leaders and community representatives who value the protection of wilderness and wildlife. The key element in these emerging regions is to provide support to leaders and civil society organisations who are able to effectively direct and deliver the public communication required for sustainable long term development.  Recognising and respecting both the environmental and political sensitivities as well as the values of these regions to be protected and conserved is essential to success.

Welcome on board as we work together for a sustainable future!
